The space
Mexican styled guest house situated on 1500 feet of year-round creek front. The newly renovated Casita has a fully functioning kitchen, dining area, and an enlarged bathroom with new shower. It provides ample space for three people. There's a long queen-sized bed and a long single bed. The ceiling is vaulted and three large windows look out over the creek and cliff beyond. Being completely separate from the main house this utterly charming space ensures your privacy and serenity. A small covered pavilion is located just outside - ideal for romantic dining or enjoying star lit nights.

Guest access
As the only guests (there's only one Casita!) you can enjoy the creek and grounds in privacy, have use of the larger pavilion, the canoe and other outdoor amenities.

Other things to note
Our neighborhood is small with one way in or out over a low-water crossing on Bear Creek. Walking or running is popular here because of the hills interspersed with straight stretches.
There is fine dining in any direction no more than 10 minutes away. Downtown Austin is 18 minutes, the popular resort town of Wimberley is about 25 minutes away. Wimberley's monthly Saturday Market Days with 400+ booths is a popular destination. This area is known as the prettiest part of the Texas Hill Country!

This place is very private, on acreage with Bear Creek running all along it with a cliff on the other side of the water. The sun lights up the cliff in the evenings and reflects back onto the water for a stunning effect, the murmur of the water over the two dams is very soothing.

Barbara is a 3 generation native Austinite . Alston hails from Tennessee. We are so fortunate to have found and purchased this beautiful and very private property almost 16 years ago and we love living here and sharing it with our guests. We own and operate a real estate business and are kept quite busy with that so you won't see much of us unless you want to. Our caretaker/friend Tina lives in another house on the property and she helps us manicure the place. Barbara's hobby is cooking and Alston has many intellectual interests. We love to read and travel to beautiful places and we recently discovered cruising. Gonna do more of that! I think our motto would be: "Treat all folks honestly and with respect and have fun while doing it".
